Jurgen Klopp refuses to confirm Gini Wijnaldum’s departure from Liverpool saying the player is “completely committed” to the club.

Wijnaldum is yet to put pen to fresh terms at Liverpool despite his current contract expiring at the end of the season.

A few reports claim the midfielder is intent on walking out the Anfield exit door this summer in the favor of joining FC Barcelona to unite with his compatriot and former national team boss Ronald Koeman. Bayern Munich, meanwhile, are also reportedly interested in acquiring his services.

Liverpool are set to take on Crystal Palace on Sunday for their final game of the Premier League season, and the match could also be the last one the 30-year-old plays at Anfield. 

“There’s nothing to say in this moment. We have a game to play. We will see after the final whistle on Sunday,” Klopp said on Wijnaldum’s future, via Daily Mail.

“It’s not the first time we had situations like this, and the boys always did well. All of the boys show incredible character. The boys are used to being in negotiations and stuff like this.

“Gini’s character is not in question. He’s a sensational guy, a sensational guy, and completely committed to the team and to the club until the last day.

“We will see when that will be.”
